Britain for Events: The Launch preview


Oct 27, 2011 | News

Nick de Bois MP, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Events, and Kevin Murphy, CEO ExCeL London, will outline their collective support of the Britain for Events campaign and the opportunity the industry has to grow its impact on the UK economy.

Murphy will outline how more government support could contribute to greater growth in the UK events market, citing; increased ministerial support for major bid events; hosting visiting delegations and bid committees; offering welcome receptions within government and state buildings for major international events; simplification of the visa process for international delegates; and public support for Britain as the World’s event destination.

Nick de Bois, will underline how government could work in partnership with the events industry, including fiscal measures to tackle Tour Operator Margin Schemes (TOMS) and the reintroduction of investment allowance. He also called on fellow ministers to aid organising committees of major events.
